Save Money With Gently-used Items

Visit our thrift shops to get great prices on clothing, uniforms, and household goods. Stretch your budget with gently used items that cost much less than the same items that are brand new. Thrift shops are a great place to get temporary or permanent items if you’ve just moved, or if you’re replacing items lost in a fire or natural disaster.

We carefully inspect all of our donated items and only offer good quality items on our shelves. Our very low prices mean you get great savings. Our selection changes frequently, so make your nearest thrift shop one of your regular shopping destinations.

Before you visit

Our thrift shops are located on bases but are separate from our Society offices.  Not all Society offices have a thrift shop.  Find your nearest Society thrift shop.

You need a military ID card to shop in our thrift stores.

Thrift shop merchandise, hours, and shopper eligibility can vary by location:

  • Merchandise. Some locations don’t carry uniforms, while others carry only uniforms.
  • Hours. Thrift shop hours vary from site to site. There may be special shopping times for retirees, and shops may be closed around the holidays.
  • Accepted payment methods. Cash and personal checks are accepted for purchases.
  • Shopper eligibility. Other military members besides USN and USMC may be allowed to shop at Society thrift shops.

Donating items

Donated merchandise helps us offer low-cost, quality items.  Generally, donated items can be accepted during regular thrift shop business hours; however, check with your local Society thrift shop to find out if they have a donation drop-box. If they don’t, you may only donate items during regular shop hours. If you’d like a receipt for donated items, a shop volunteer can help you. If you’d like to mail donated items, please call the local thrift shop first.
